    Can you correlate it with any action on your part? For example, in the two images you provided, the "normal" one doesn't have the find bar at the bottom. The problematic one does.

    Do you have other options when you log in? My thinking is that while Firefox will be the same, you may get an idea of whether this problem is related only to GNOME Classic or not. For example, do you have the GNOME Classic No Effects option? If so, what happens when you run Firefox?

    Yes, this can happen when not browsing, perhaps while I am running another application. There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason to the disappearance. Glad to see that someone else has seen the problem. I am not alone. BTW, I have not seen this happen in my Mint installation of FF, only the Ubuntu. (Just to be clear, I am running Gnome Classic and not Unity. I find Unity somewhat off-putting, annoying really).

    Yep, except it never disappears when I'm watching it It might disappear when I minimize it. I've been trying to correlate some action, but haven't got it figured out yet.

    Not very long, less than an hour

    I don't think it related to the find bar

    Re: Firefox +1 Mega Thread

    After upgrading to ubuntu 12.04.1 from 10.04. I notice there are two add-ons installed by default. (One of these was probably there when I used 10.04 but did not enable it.) The first is "Global menu bar integration 3.4" which integrates menu bar to unity panel. However I was not satisfied with unity panel and installed lxde and I am using this panel. So I do not need to enable this add-on. Is this correct?

    The second is "ubuntu firefox modification 2.11.1" which is supposed to manage ubuntu configuration defaults for firefox and extension plugins. Unfortunately I am unable to get details of this add-on on internet. Can anybody please explain its need? I have not yet enabled it. I have no enabled plugins for firefox. Do I really need to use the add-on?

    If you're not using Unity (or a KDE panel with the menubar widget), you don't need the Global Menu Bar Integration addon. You can uninstall the package firefox-globalmenu to remove it completely. The other addon (a.k.a. Ubufox) does the following:

    • Display a restart notification after upgrading Firefox
    • Add ask.com to the search engines. You can uninstall this if you prefer to use a pristine Firefox install.

    Re: Firefox +1 Mega Thread

    Is it appropriate to use the commands
    Code:
    sudo apt-get --purge autoremove firefox-globalmenu
    sudo apt-get --purge autoremove xul-ext-ubufox
    for the purpose? I need to confirm. I hope these component packages work independent of one another so that uninstalling two components will not affect working of others. (I am a bit concerned because I am facing instability issues since upgradation) Also I want to make sure that no updates for these packages are notified at later dates.

    Just this would be fine:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge firefox-globalmenu xul-ext-ubufox

    Actually, just this would be fine:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove firefox-globalmenu xul-ext-ubufox

    Those packages don't have system configuration files, which would be removed by the purge. Not even firefox package needs a purge.

    Ok, thanks for pointing that out.

    Re: Firefox +1 Mega Thread

    I'm seeing a remember password dialog box on the latest Nightly 19 build which I have never seen before . The problem is that it offers every time I login to a site instead of offering once like other browsers. Has anyone seen this yet and is it working properly ?

    Re: Firefox +1 Mega Thread

    I am using firefox 16.0.2 in ubuntu 12.04. There had been one problem with firefox since I upgraded from lucid, i.e., occasionally some text lines displayed in firefox has horizontal black lines (of various thickness) passing through them, making them hard to read. If I press mouse over those lines, these disappear and if I save the page, the lines don't appear in saved file. So they are present only temporarily but is irritating. How do I stop this from happening?
